The secret Agenda of Japan & IAEA is in full effect. Like in Belarus, where 72% of the Chernobyl fallout went down.

1996 said the belarusian president Lukashenko during a meeting of the IAEA: “We encourage people to come back. We will open the shops again and enable the people to return to their evacuated towns and villages.”
National statements were made by the President of Belarus, Mr. A. Lukashenko:
quote: “Lukashenko, as far as I understand, is doing it somewhat surreptitiously. It is not an open process. There are reports, for instance, of encouraging agriculture, redeveloping dairying and forestry operations, and encouraging people either to resettle or to move into contaminated areas.” – from (page 51): http://www.wilsoncenter.org/topics/pubs/OP295.pdf
BELARUS adopted a new program, that killed financial support for irradiated areas:

Angela Merkel IGNORES all data and Chernobyl studies, showing an increase in diseases, mutation, disbility, mortality and morbidity and so on. EVIDENCE: http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/Publications/PDF/Pub1001_web.pdf ANGELA MERKEL said in 1996 at the IAEA meeting: page 51: “This week’s conference is an attempt to formulate a synthesis from the results of the meetings of the WHO in Geneva, the European Commission in Minsk and the International Forum on Nuclear Safety Aspects here in Vienna.(…) We must assess the epidemiological findings for other types of cancer, in particular with regard to leukaemia, which has always been thought to be the most sensitive indicator for exposure to radiation. There have not yet been any cases of leukaemia attributable to the disaster. What does this mean for the future? In this connection we will have to examine what this means for the development of other tumours or other health effects as the results of exposure to radiation.We think that we know that these effects on health are psychological consequences of the accident, the general uncertainty about the actual situation, as well as other stress factors, e.g. resettlement. This was associated with a disruption of social networks. Several hundred thousand people were evacuated or resettled, with enormous social implications. At the same time we can see an increase in the accumulation of specific diseases — not yet regarded as radiation induced — particularly among children.” SHE IGNORES 1000,000 ill Chernobyl children.

They made the most simplest decision – to return to the contaminated zones. Why? Because it is at least a week guarantee that they will have Chernobyl’s compensations for those remaining. For example, people living in zones of eviction have the right to receive 50 rubles per month (today it is about 2 USD). People working in that zones have rights to receive 300 rubles per month (it is about 12 USD). Taking into account that the average salary in Novozubkovo is 290 rubles per month, it is not difficult to imagine how such little money is important for the people.” More: http://www.rri.kyoto-u.ac.jp/NSRG/en/Novosti.html

Quote by Mariko Ichikawa, head of a consumer group from July 23rd 2011:
“Experts say there is no effect on health if you eat a small amount of meat with the current [low] level of contamination. It may be necessary to check all meat cows in Fukushima Prefecture, but is it necessary for the government to use a large amount of taxpayers’ money to buy the [contaminated] meat and burn it? We need more discussion”
“I want everyone to remember the BSE crisis in the US, when people trusted the domestic beef. ”
Original japanese Source: http://mainichi.jp/select/opinion/closeup/news/20110723ddm003040079000c.html
We do not need more discussion. We need to understand, that radionuclides in food cause no immediate dangers, because of the latency of Cesium 137 and Strontium 90, for example.
BSE is not subtantial equivalent to radiation. One is radiation of radionuclides with a halflife (30 years, but 300 years biological) the other is a Brain disease epidemic (BSE).
The statement of Mariko Ichikawa is criminal.

Read this: Since 2006, non-state Newspaper Inform-progulka Is prohibited for Sale at Newspaper Kiosk
quote “The almost absence of an independent press in Belarus leads to two central problems for the democratic opposition: on one hand their publicity and effectiveness is low and on the other hand, the state press is aggressively used as a propaganda tool against the independent press – and not just since the events following the presidential election.”: http://www.lphr.org/en/news/news-details/article/printmedien-in-belarus/
Will happen with newspapers in Japan also.
Japan officials are going to call radiation measurements illegal and that they are disturbing the industry. Health plays no role. They are adapting the IAEA ideology of Radiophobia: The fear of radiation is worse than the radiation. Civil Society with it’s Fukushima NGOs will become a threat to the poitical level and hunted down like in Belarus.

“If we continue to treat them like victims, they feel like victims,” quote by Zoya I. Trafimchik, coordinator of the CORE programme
The costs of the atomic accident, tsnuami and earthquake are invaluable, because the full impact on human health is yet to come:
quote: “In about 4 years we’re going to see the same with japanese children.
The then children are already suffering much earlier – often with fatal consequences.
The cesium is present in the inheritance cells.
Precarious, is that the cesium implants in the ovaries and the eggs of women. Because renew their loans, they are damaged for life.
Although renewed in sperm, they also give more information to the injury during fertilization. Either, it can no longer be fathered children, or they get through father and mother misinformation in the future. The result you can not even imagine.
The authorities in Japan had long ago have put women and children in the south of the country. Why they did not is, in my view, totally incomprehensible. There will be massive leukemia. This cesium cloud is a disaster for the Japanese, and from all other radionuclides, we know nothing.
The body can not distinguish between Calcium and Strontium. If it is taken in through the food chain. It is built into the bones and teeth, shines there and hits the bone marrow, where sit the blood-forming organs: The stem cells that give rise to the red and white blood cells and platelets.
These cells are damaged by Strontium, and indeed a lifetime, because the strontium remains where it is: irradiating with short and beta radiation.”
Costs make pressure. Pressure destroys the democracy. No country in the world can pay for an atomic accident. Not a single reactor is assured, it’s simpy too expensive:

Belarus is transforming into a 2nd generation of some kind of Atomic State (Before: Chernobyl, Now: Reactor). Which means everyone who speaks against atomic power is an enemy of the state. New developments are under way: Belarusian officials detain over 450 after rally: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ht93_cpV6vNi4Z5PsSGCiTOtxLGQ?docId=e6806b5fd8b240bbae405d2bfd098e74&index=0
After leaving Areva, SIEMENS (web) cooperates with ROSATOM (web) – the russian concern, which started building the first Belarusian atomic reactor. Belarus is the most Chernobyl affected country in the world. Still more than 2 million people are living in contaminated areas there.
This is how the situation is Belarus is RIGHT NOW:
I wrote on March 15th 2011: https://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2011/03/15/fukushima-the-iaea-strategy/
The IAEA wants the people make believe, that the main effect of the atomic catastrophe is psychological. This is made in these steps:
– Make the people believe, that because of background radiation every additional radiation is natural, normal, not bad (known as the principle of “substantial equivalence”)
– Tell the people, that Fukushima is not as bad as Chernobyl, and, Chernobyl was a small accident (50 deaths acc. to WHO, 125,000 deaths acc. to Ukrainian health minisry 1993).
– Make the people believe, that any other statement is panic and unobjective (The IAEA uses the word “Radiophobia” for Chernobyl)
– The IAEA recognizes the disease in highly contaminated areas as not in connection with the contamination.
– Make sure that there are no independent measurements, only measurements by the atomic power plant operator, it is also important NOT to show radiation measurements during the TV weather forecasts.
– Make sure that there are no organized measurements at all, for each region, each plant, each city – especially not in the media. Or do reconstrucion on the basis of official data, which are often too low.
– Advise the officals with authentic language
– Advise the government to install a 30 km No Enter Zone – invented and used during the atomic weapon test in the U.S. – but 30 km is not enough for an atomic reactor accident.
– Refuse cancer studies like the german KiKK study as unscientific
– Raise radiation limits for different groups of people, so that different values can be measured but each is normal, and below the limt
Prof. Hiroaki Koide concludes that if Tokyo has been contaminated this much, then ‘areas within Fukushima prefecture must be seriously contaminated’.
Japanese government wants to reduce evacuation zone:

The ICRP says “The cancer risk goes up by 0.5% with 100 millisieverts exposure.”
Well, that’s the ICRP: A direct servant of the atomic industry itsel. I qoute myself again: https://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2011/03/22/iaea-uncesco-icrp-playing-down-radiation-in-fukushima-and-chernobyl-is-scientifically-valid/
Report of the International Komietees the IAEA in 1991: The international Chernobyl project, assess the effects on health and the environment and evaluation of radiation protection measures. Presentation 1991, in Vienna. Chairman of the Committee, Dr Itsuzo Shigematsu – also chairman of the Researching the effects of radiation -> RERF (web) in Hiroshima Institute.
He set up the limit of the dose for the resettlement and maximum values for contaminated food.
Source: ICRP: Protection of the Public in the Event of Major Radiation Accidents: Principles and Planing – ICRP Publication 40th Annuals of the ICRP, 14, no. 2. 1984
ICRP: Principles for intervention of Protection of the Public in a Radiological Emergency. ICRP Publication 63rd 1993
The IAEA has criticized the RCRP, they should apply the ICRP guidelines. This means that people relocating is unnecessary if the level of individual radiation mSv in the first year after an accident does not exceed 500. (ICRP 1984) If this dose is short, there are acute Radiations symptoms. 500 mSv are also equivalent of 1.7 km distance to Ground Zero in Hiroshima.
Nov. 1992: The ICRP INCREASED the dose for the evacuation in 1Sv – the equivalent to 1.3 km to the Hiroshima Ground Zero.
This means the continuation of nuclear power, even if people die.
1992: increased occupational radiation ICRP recommends to 0.05 Sv / year.
IAEA and WHO deny leukemia in connection with radiation.
1954 ICRP was an organisation of 13 male members. Till 1990 the first woman came to them…
They made the recommendations for radiation protection norms, which were accepted by all countries, and which (very important!) justified the set of regulations of the IAEA. Interesting isn’t it? Here is one:
ICRP said, the tritium emission (from atomic power plants) in water should be 40.000 Bq. And now the crazy progress of the ICRP: In 1990 they said: Lets make 7000 Bq/ litre. This was proved by ACES (Comitee for environmental standards). They said: Wrong housenumber, change the 7000 (Because of cancer danger). They also said: Lower it to 100 Bq in five years until you get 20 Bq / Litre.
I think its a big difference between 40.000 and 20, don’t you?
That’s why we should never tolerate a number for low radiation emission from atomic power plants.
But the IAEA uses them in a very cruel way, since the Chernobyl reactor explosion in 1986. If you read through a paper from 1990 (called “Document Nr. 60 1990), written by the ICRP you find the description
“temporary radiation effect”.
Effects which they did not find heavy enough in order that the effected people can be compensated.
Japanese people hear it from Fukshima day One: “Panic and fear of radiation is much worse than radiation itself“
This statement is used by the IAEA for Chernobyl victims.
The IAEA ignores cancer, leukemia, diabetes, trisomy 21, all kinds of illness, all kinds of cancer in connection with radiation, especially low radiation.
The IAEA calls it “Radiophobia”: http://www.iaea.org/inis/collection/NCLCollectionStore/_Public/31/017/31017716.pdf – this is what Japan now uses for their anti radiation fear propaganda.
The present and future victims are perceived as a disturbance to the atomic industry, to the japanese government, to the companies running atomic plants. They are going to end it.
Since the foundation of the IAEA their purpose is: To serve and protect the atomic industry in these five countries: USA, Russia, China, France, Britain.
They also monopolized public health during and after atomic accidents, by the gag contract WHA 12-40 between them and the WHO (1959). SOURCE
ICRP totally gave up tp IAEA. IAEA is doing ICRP work today. And more: IAEA is selling the “peacefull atomic energy theory” worldwide. Although peaceful atomic reactos do develop low radiation (whose effects IAEA does try to deny) and weapon-ready Plutonium. It’s a BIG money game they are playing for decades and which will end hopefully soon (Uranium range: 60 years and below).
ICRP is NOT the organisation (in my opinion) which is in charge to protect the workers of the atomic industry. The ICRP does make down-the-lines and brings economic “imperative” into account. ICRP is not the advocator for radiation protection. Are there ICRP members who do have an apprenticeship in public health or industrial medicine?
More background: HOW MUCH RADIATION? http://www.ratical.org/radiation/KillingOurOwn/KOO12.html
ICRP members are profiteers of the atomic industry, just like the IAEA. Don’t expect to them to make radiation safety for YOU. This is an evidence that our modern society seems to have big problems.
Critique of ICRP structure and membership by Dr. Rosalie Bertel: http://ratical.org/radiation/inetSeries/wwc2_10.txt
“The Board (AECB Canada) relies heavily on the recommendations of international agencies and committees. Two of the most important of which are the ICRP and UNSCEAR.”
“The dominant expertise among ICRP membership between 1950 and 1985 was physicists, with one biophysicist (46.9% of the person years). ”
“Clearly when practically all members are in the pay of their respective governments, ICRP cannot claim to be free of all bias, conflict of interest or government pressure.”
“Membership in ICRP appears to be made on the basis of occupational affiliation with national nuclear research (military or commercial) and regulatory agencies. It clearly provides a forum for dialogue on nuclear policies and standards among nations with a clear governmental standardize their “story” relative to the health trade off (risks) of their nuclear activities (benefits).”
“UNSCEAR, as all United Nations Agencies, is an organization of delegates sent by member governments. It does not make recommendations on radiological health and safety practices but serves primarily as an information gathering agency.
quotes by UNSCEAR from: http://ratical.org/radiation/CNR/NoSafeThresh.html / What Is Factually Wrong with This Belief: “Harm from Low-Dose Radiation Is Just Hypothetical — Not Proven”
“”The extent to which radiation-induced DNA damage may be correctly repaired at very low doses and very low dose rates is beyond the resolution of current experimental techniques. If DNA double-strand breaks are critical lesions determining a range of cellular responses, including perhaps neoplastic transformation, then it may be that wholly accurate cellular repair is unlikely even at the very low lesion abundance expected after low dose and low-dose-rate irradiation.”
“”It is highly unlikely that a dose threshold exists for the initial molecular damage to DNA, because a single track from any ionizing radiation has a finite probability of producing a sizable cluster of atomic damage directly in, or near, the DNA. Only if the resulting molecular damage, plus any additional associated damage from the same track, were always repaired with total efficiency could there be any possibility of a dose threshold for consequent cellular effects.”
“Biological effects are believed to arise predominantly from residual DNA changes that originate from radiation damage to chromosomal DNA. It is the repair response of the cell that determines its fate. The majority of damage is repaired, but it is the remaining unrepaired or misrepaired damage that is then considered responsible for cell killing, chromosomal aberrations, mutations, transformations and cancerous changes.”
“The BEIR Committees are heavily staffed with personnel from U.S. Government nuclear research laboratories such as Oak Ridge and Brookhaven, and with researchers from the atomic bomb research centers at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There is a greater breadth of expertise on the BEIR Committees than on ICRP and much more internal dissent. However, the Committee assumes an adversarial rather than scientific role. “
“The delegates to ICRP, UNSCEAR and BEIR chosen by their respective governments have both personal and national compelling reason for perpetuating their closed structure and secrecy.”
Why BEIR VII (Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation) plays in the hand of atomic industry – quote “they rely on data from Hiroshima and Nagasaki to assess for low dose exposure in humans. BEIR VII is assessing continuous or routine low doses, but data from Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not adequate predictors of the full range of health effects for various types of exposure…”

“Activists from Belarus and Germany arrested brutally at peaceful anti-nuclear action
Minsk, 25th April, 18.35 belarussian time. 6 activists from germany and 5 activists from Belarus, as well as one activist from Poland have been brutally arrested.
Around 40 activists have protested peacefully against the construction of the first nuclear power in Ostrovetz, Belarus. They held banners saying «Chernobyl, Fukushima — Ostrovets?» and «We are against nuclear power plants» and gave out leaflets. There were two flashmobs – the first lasted around 5 min.
However, the second flashmob was interrupted immediately. After around one minute two vehicles with civil police stopped, as well as a red prisoner’s transport. Peaceful protestors were thrown to the ground and arrested using brutal force.
Against all nuclear power installations! No newbuild of nuclear power plants — in Belarus or anywhere! Solidarity with political prisoners!

quote by Dr. Rosalia Bertell, November 1999 issue of The Ecologist, pp. 408-411: http://ratical.org/radiation/NAvictims.html
The main way in which the “radiation protection industry” has succeeded in hugely underrating the ill-health caused by nuclear power is by insisting on a group of extremely restrictive definitions as to what qualifies as a radiation-caused illness statistic. For example, under IAEA’s criteria:
> If a radiation-caused cancer is not fatal, it is not counted in the IAEA’s figures
> If a cancer is initiated by another carcenogen, but accelerated or promoted by exposure to radiation, it is not counted.
> If an auto-immune disease or any non-cancer is caused by radiation, it is not counted.
> Radiation-damaged embryos or foetuses which result in miscarriage or stillbirth do not count
> A congenitally blind, deaf or malformed child whose illnesses are are radiation-related are not included in the figures because this is not genetic damage, but rather is teratogenic, and will not be passed on later to the child’s offspring.
> Causing the genetic predisposition to breast cancer or heart disease does not count since it is not a “serious genetic disease” in the Mendelian sense.
> Even if radiation causes a fatal cancer or serious genetic disease in a live born infant, it is discounted if the estimated radiation dose is below 100 mSv [mSv= millisievert, a measurement of radiation exposure. One hundred millsievert is the equivalent in radiation of about 100 X-Rays].
> Even if radiation causes a lung cancer, it does not count if the person smokes — in fact whenever there is a possibility of another cause, radiation cannot be blamed.
> If all else fails, it is possible to claim that radiation below some designated dose does not cause cancer, and then average over the whole body the radiation dose which has actually been received by one part of the body or even organ, as for instance when radio-iodine concentrates in the thyroid. This arbitrary dilution of the dose will ensure that the 100 mSv cut-off point is nowhere near reached. It is a technique used to dismiss the sickness of Gulf War veterans who inhaled small particles of ceramic uranium which stayed in their lungs for more than two years, and in their bodies for more than eight years, irradiating and damaging cells in a particular part of the body.
war is going on.
It was made publicly known in 1953 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared war upon every citizen and human being with “The Peaceful Atom”. It was then further developed in 1954 with the first hydrogen bomb testing which changed the most important international program for radiation protection and compensation: THE ALARA PRINCIPLE: https://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2011/03/21/iaea-and-icrp-the-alara-principle/, the h bomb testing is the successor to the Hiroshima / Nagasaki testing (!). The BASE for ALL RADIATION LIMITS is the T65D Study (Tentative Dose Estimate compiled in 1965): http://www.rerf.or.jp/glossary_e/t65d.htm For validation of this study the US even did an atomic test in Nevada: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/212/4497/900.extract
The indirect chemical damage to cell membranes in the low dose range is much more important than the direct effect of radiation on the nucleus with its genetic material. In the nucleus there appears to be much stronger repair mechanisms than in the cell membranes. This is consistent with the purposes of evolution: Increasingly higher development of life. First and foremost, namely the genes in the nucleus had greatly developed by repair mechanisms to be protected. Only then could the nature of the gene pool protect itself against the highly damaging properties of natural radiation, and thus maintain the relative stability of species over millions of years.

But in contrast to the gene pool, individual members of populations (plants, animals, people) for the evolution are not so important to the contrary, her constant death and her replacement by reproduction is an important evolutionary process. The repair mechanisms in the cell membranes were needed, but weren’t so important, because you only caused diseases, but no genetic defects. And if one member of a population has fulfilled its evolutionary role of reproduction, sit is no longer needed, so a life extension beyond the reproductive age is also not absolutely necessary. This is for the survival of animals and plant species are not necessarily problematic, however, for human society. Each individual hopes to a long and healthy life, far beyond reproduction age. In addition, an adaptation to environmental toxic substances in humans is not possbile, because of the generational change phaes which are very long. But we add more radiation by atomic energy with it’s low radiation emission, accidents, catastrophes – which are peeks.
